Hello list,

Again not sure if this is a right place to ask.

I read the "Snail book" (SSH, The secure shell. The definitive guide.
1st ed.) and try to figure out whether I need a copy of the ssh-agent
running on a host through which I try connect further.

The Snail book recommends running the ssh-agent on the remote host
always if the TTY is allocated (i.e. I not just remote-execute a
command there).

My feel is that I need an agent only if I'm on /dev/con not on
/dev/tty, i.e. logged-in locally.

Please comment.
Best regards,
